How To Train You Dog


Many people believe that it is necessary to start raising and training a dog after it is 7–8 months old, and before that age it is enough just to walk the dog, train it at home, outdoors, and do not particularly strain the puppy with various training exercises. This opinion is wrong. It is necessary to start training and, in general, raising a puppy from the first day the dog appears in the house.

Where to begin?

First, choose a nickname for your dog and train your pet to respond to that name and your voice. You should not assign a puppy long, complex nicknames, difficult to pronounce. It is better to choose a shorter, more sonorous version that is easy to pronounce and understandable for your dog. It is easy to accustom a puppy to a nickname - it is enough to call his name at each call and reinforce this action with a treat, stroking or playing. Over time, the nickname will become a conditioned signal for the dog, to which it will react, showing attention to whoever pronounces it.

Teach your puppy to be hygienic

The first time walking with the puppy is undesirable. It is recommended to stay at home until the end of the vaccination procedure, so mark the puppy's natural needs during this time. This could be an absorbent diaper, an old towel, or a tray. They need to be placed near the front door. Push the awakened, playing or eating puppy to this place or carry it in your arms. Wait for the puppy to do his thing, and then do not change the diaper or wash the litter box for one day. The smell will attract the puppy next time, allowing him to quickly get used to going to the toilet in one place.

As soon as the puppy is allowed to go out for a walk, the litter box or diaper should be removed. It is advisable to take the puppy for a walk as often as possible. Then he will quickly get used to going to the toilet only on the street.

Train your puppy to the spot

As your own place, which the puppy should have, you can choose a bedding, a soft mattress of a small size, a bed, a soft booth, a cage or a container. The main condition for choosing is the comfort and convenience of the pet.

Place the place for the puppy in a cozy corner of the house or apartment, it should not be in the kitchen, not on the aisle and away from heating devices. Each time you take the puppy to the place or send him there, reinforce his actions with a treat and gentle words. If the puppy settles down to rest in other parts of your house, carefully carry it to the place, stroke it and say a few affectionate words.

 A place for a dog is her little home, in which she should be calm, comfortable and safe. It is to this perception of the dog's place that you need to strive.

Don't make your dog a beggar

Many puppies begin to beg quite actively when family members or the owner are eating. Never, under any circumstances, feed your puppy from the table or near the table. Don't do it yourself and don't let anyone else do it. It is enough just once to treat the dog with something from the table during breakfast, lunch or dinner, and you will get a beggar dog, which will not only look at you with sad eyes and salivate near the table, but also be sure to check what is left on it when you leave the kitchen.

Don't provoke your dog into destructive behavior

Many puppies have fun using the shoes of the owner and other family members as toys. They taste furniture, electrical wires, curtains, and examine the contents of trash cans and flower pots. All this happens due to the fact that the puppy needs play and active actions for development. Puppies are inherently researchers, and, as a rule, they are very fond of trying all the objects of their interest to the tooth.

What needs to be done to prevent the puppy's actions from being a devastating disaster for your home? Here are some helpful tips:

- Raise the wires lying on the floor to a height unattainable for the puppy;

- Put your indoor and outdoor shoes in closets. If the puppy is interested in curtains, raise them for a while to the windowsill;

- Provide the dog with toys and take an active part in the game yourself;

- If the puppy can already walk, make sure that the walk is not a slow promenade, but takes place in good dynamics and with dosed physical activity. Tired after a walk, the puppy will eat and rest with appetite, gaining strength. He will not have time and energy for hooliganism in this regime.

Don't let your puppy become a leader

Almost all dogs tend to exhibit dominant behavior as they grow older. This can be determined by the following actions:

- The puppy actively bites his hands, while showing imitative aggression (growls, gets angry, does not react to the prohibition);

- He takes a place on a bed, sofa or armchair, and when he tries to send him to the place he resists;

- Does not respond to the ban and tries to climb on the table in search of food;

- Actively resists and tries to bite when examining his ears, teeth, rubbing his paws, combing;

- He growls and guards his food, does not allow him to pick up the bowl;

- The puppy seeks to run out of the house or apartment before you, regardless of the prohibitions;

- He actively tries to impose communication on you, interferes with rest, tirelessly pesters, barks, does not respond to commands;

- Behaves unnecessarily independently during a walk, does not come up at the command "Come to me", runs away.
